My Frailty

frail·ty ˈfrā(ə)ltē


the condition of being weak and delicate.

“the increasing frailty of old age”

weakness in character or morals.
plural noun: frailties
“all drama begins with human frailty”
I have all my needs provided for or acquired. I find myself craving more. As the result of paying close attention to my desires and potential drives behind them. I have found that I can never really have what I am hoping to possess in some way. I have yet to figure out why I become obsessed with what I can really never have in the way I imagine.
I am in fact sure that if I did get it, I would no longer want it with the same passion that I wanted for it in the first place. What is it about me that I contort my principles to appeal another that I might be found in their favor, while at the same time the reaction to me is one of ambivalence or perhaps even indifference. It leaves me wanting it even more

While all along there are those that are available, yet there is only mild interest on my part.

I think I am afraid to make authentic connections and receive the Love an appreciation that I’m not sure I deserve but should.

  1. This is really not too hard to answer. First you (or your character if you are a writer) do not have self-esteem, otherwise known as confidence. Second you are lacking in contentment – a contented person is satisfied with what he has. Third, in Biblical terminology you are ‘lusting’ what belongs to others which can lead to all sorts of problems.
    #3 is the only one that relates to being weak. Frail and delicate are circumstances of birth and health. Work on the first two and lock the door against the third.

  2. LOL. Of course it is. But the rub lies there. You can continue the same ol same ol and feel the discontent or itchyness of dissatisfaction. Which can be a real beast. OR. Take some small steps into the unknown and change, do, calm/sooth the inner self.
    We are who we are, but we can challenge ourselves, live, be the same and different dispite frailties.

  3. Ya know these are questions that at time plague most of not all of us. It’s the age old “when is enough, enough?” The answer I think is at any moment when we fully embrace who and what we are and learn to find joy in the simple pleasures of life. This is not our home and so we are always longing for more of what our limited lives can offer us when in reality it is a longing for that touch of our Maker once more. 🙂 ❤

  4. I think searching for this love or affection will lead to utter dismay…I think people fail to realise from the start that you just have to be doing so, you attract the right people to your circle of love where you will abundantly give affection and receive more than you asked for.
